christmas card class

Published by at 4:56 pm under cards,stamping

Today I’ll share the five cards I designed for the Christmas Card Class for my Mom’s church group. Last year I had used a Simply Scrapin’ Kit for the class, but instead, this year I was inspired by the colors from the Winter Bright scrappin’ kit. I loved the fresh color combination and found that the L’il Davis Love Affair line was similar in color combinations and too cute to pass up. You can find this line at eclectic Paperie here: L’il Davis Love Affair

The designs I used for the class are Romeo (stripes), Juliet (flower design) and Valentino (dots). Since I am no longer a Stampin’ Up! Demo, you’ll notice that I used stamps from other companies and a retired SU! set. I’ll list the stamps used for each card under the picture and at the end I’ll list the cardstock colors and inks used for the class.

Stamps: Many Merry Messages, Hung Up on the Holidays


Stamps: This stamp is a part of a set from Inkadinkado by Brenda Walton found here: Reindeer
